Coppice Valley Community Projects
At Coppice, we are always looking to develop projects which meet our two community goals:
- Sustainability: To educate our children about sustainability, advocating waste reduction and environmental care.
- Community Care: Support our community to access resources and empower families with long term solutions.
If you are an individual or business and want to support us with one of our ongoing school projects, we would love to hear from you. This support may be through materials, a contact e-mail of someone who can help us or a donation to help us deliver the project.
Please contact Hannah McNamara on 01423 563 760 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to know more about a project or offer support.
What? A community space which will have pre-loved uniform, seasonal clothing, food parcels, books for pleasure and other resources. These will all be free to those in our community, to support all families. Our pastoral lead will also be based in the community hub before and after school, to offer support, advice and gain feedback.
Why? This project meets our two community goals by reducing landfill, and supporting all families to access resources.
How? £5,000 for the building structure, installation and its initial set up.
Slow Cooker Project
What? We wish to deliver parent workshops with the aim of helping families learn how to cook healthy, low-cost meals. The slow cooker will be gifted to the family at the end of the workshops.
Why? By teaching the skills needed to maximize the potential of these appliances, we hope to alleviate some of the challenges associated with food insecurity and promote healthy eating habits.
How? £400 for:
- 10x 5litre+ slow cookers (£35 each).
- Low cost ingredients for a first meal, for 10 families (£50).
Outdoor Classroom / Canopy
What? A natural classroom for: scientific exploration, artistic expression, and outdoor activities, promoting holistic pupil development. We would like this to also be a space to host workshops and residential events whilst educating about sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Why? This is part of the development of our Nature School and will be used by all pupils in school. In the future, we also hope to deliver on-site residential opportunities that are affordable to all families.
How? £6,000 for materials and installation.
What? We need a garden shed to go in our meadow to help us deliver our Nature School.
Why? Every week, the class teachers carry the many resources needed to deliver lessons from school, up to the meadow. Instead, we need a space to keep the equipment used in lessons. Children will gain independence skills, accessing the resources they need to learn.
How? £550 for the shed and installation.
